the good, the bad, the ugly and the whole sha-bang

I've been mia from my blog for a few days. Some major life changing events have taken place in my world. I was let go from my company on Friday. For those of you who don't remember or didn't follow my blog, last August the hubs and I relocated to Iowa from Chicago for my new job and for him to attend school.

Right now I'm absorbing everything and keeping in good spirits! I see this as an opportunity to take a little time to think about my next move. This is quite a shift for me as I have been employed since I was 16...and full time since I graduated college in 2000.

Once I get a new routine going I'll be posting some more again.

Hey, I didn't name this blog "The Adventuresome Road To Where?" for nothing!!! I've got the adventuresome part down, now I just need to figure out where!

what a fabulous way to look at things, and just what I needed to hear this morning because today I'll find out that I've been let go my my company. Fora variety of reasons I know this. I don't want to stay but, like you, I've been working since I was sixteen and straight after school so it's strange. I'm not someone who normally takes time, but I have to. Whilst I don't even want this job I must admit that on some level I still feel bad. Nevertheless, we have to embrace the adventure in order to find a better path, of that I am sure. So keep up the positive attitude and I'm excited to see where you go next! Thinking of you!

Thanks for the wonderful comment. It's been a week for me now, and while it doesn't feel good initially, it gets better :) I know you had some unexpected challenges in your position, as did I, but now we have the opportunity to turn over a new leaf. I look forward to hearing of your new adventures too!
